In our rundown of the best hot chocolate in Boston, a few notable spiked examples made the cut. But should you seek something a little stronger, you’re going to want to head to our favorite bar-ware store, Boston Shaker.
Warren Bobrow and his trusty sidekick, Klaus the Soused Gnome show us how to conjure a mighty strong batch of hot chocolate made with Austrian-made Stroh 160. That’s right, that’s 160-proof rum. Hey, if anyone knows how ward off a winter chill, it’s the Austrians.

Klaus is up in Boston for a visit to prove a point. That the garden fresh herbs contained in Fernet Branca offer more than just basic cocktailian satisfaction. They augment our desire for unique flavors while calming the belly.
It’s funny how Klaus can travel, seemingly around the globe then wake up to want another drink, another way of tasting liquid history.

Hot Toddy Time!
Frosty weather is coming quickly and in keeping with his German heritage, Klaus has a fire burning in the fireplace to take the chill off the morning. Mornings in the old house are usually punctuated by the sound of crackling fires in the dining room fireplace. Comforting and warming, a nice fire is taking the chill off the air out in the garden.
Although it’s still warm during the day, the mornings can be rather chilly!
